Then add to both sides to put the term in the LHS. Now you have standard form which is . The positive sign on the -coefficient is not strictly necessary for Standard Form -- the only restriction is for the coefficents to be integers -- but I do it for neatness sake. b) Pick a value for . It can be anything you like but a small integer divisible by the coefficient on will make the arithmetic easier and will give you a nice neat integer result. Substitute this value for and then solve the resulting single-variable equation for . Create an ordered pair using the selected value of and the calculated value of . John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
